Barbara Nessim

A fortnight ago I previewed the free Barbara Nessim display in Room 74 at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London (CLICK). BBC News has posted a slide show of some of the 80 exhibits (CLICK). This minimalist portrait of John Lennon caught my eye. It was commissioned by Rolling Stone magazine 8 years after a maniac shot Lennon to death in the USA. Nessim left part of the portrait blank to represent the musician's untimely end. Yoko Ono loved the portrait.
